The Kilkenny store, though I pass it by really frequently – y’know, as I navigate the big hassle of Trinity trying to get from Tara St to Denzille Lane – is one that I would rarely go into. It reminds me of my mother or yours, of a very country Ireland, of a type of Irish design that has kind of been left behind by people such as Sinead Doyle and Emma Manley.

Then I got a mailer about Nougat, one of the brands stocked by Kilkenny, and I thought again.

Quite simply, I love both of these pieces. I love the print and shape on the dress – so flattering on any figure – and the pearl detail on the cardigan is very sweet, and the coral colour is one I’m weak for . . . in short, I’m a fan.

It’s made me rethink my whole Nassau St strategy and I’ll definitely be popping in next time I’m stocking up on fashion magazines in Reads. What about you? Are you a Kilkenny fan?
